So that's the lot ruined except for the Giro then!argyllflyer said:Carlton confirming on Twitter some of his races:
April monuments / classics, Tour de France and Vuelta with Sean Kelly for Eurosport
Giro etc with Dan Lloyd (for RCS)
I know dreadful! Sadly, Quigley is even worse! ES really need to hire someone with decent eyesight and knowledge of who the riders are to help them out.cocteau_ireland said:Kirby. In Milan San-Remo he hadn't a scooby who kristoff was. "The big man in the middle" was all he cud shout with 20mtrs left. Yesterday, in tour of catalunya he didn't recognise mezgec at finish(neither did I). But at the finish today still had no clue as to who the guy storming thru on his own was, the leader's jersey offering no insights for this man. It's like when alan partridge did sports commentary. Disgusted fron tunbridge wells.
I think he'll be used in pre and post race sections. I'd imagine especially during TdF for Europe etc when British Eurosport viewers are getting James Richardson and guests.Roude Leiw said:I read somewhere that ES signed Lemond as a consultant. He already commenting something?
Beech Mtn said:My problem with Kirby is he gets over-excited and starts yelling about everything. Today he used the same shrieking to announce that they were going under a bridge/into a tunnel as he did when there was a crash. Then did it again when they entered a roundabout. Kept making me jump thinking there was a crash somewhere the way he would gasp and shriek. I can't imagine having to be closed up in a commentary booth with him with no ability to turn down the volume. The man needs to be given tranquilizers before and during broadcasts.
At the end of todays stage when he should have been saying words to the effect of "...and Mezgec wins again!!", he somehow came up with "Happy birthday!!"CycloAndy said:I know dreadful!
